Caregiving in The US
Family Caregiving is public health and economic security issue. Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) is the leading organization conducting policy analysis and tracking federal legislation dealing with family caregiving issues in the U.S. – initiatives that focus on family caregivers or affect the care recipient in a way that would also affect the family caregiver.
Open Data Project
As part of a national effort to open data to innovators, businesses, and non-profits, the National Alliance for Caregiving is proud to provide open data sets from our national studies for others to use in their research and policy analysis.
In addition to the Caregiving in the U.S. studies, NAC has partnered with a number of stakeholders to do a “deep dive” of the caregiving experience facing special populations of caregivers. From Alzheimer’s to retirement, rare disease to working caregivers, NAC has taken a second look at the challenges facing caregivers across the lifespan.
